Question Who Has an iPad?

OK, so yea I'm an Apple geek, but wasn't sold on the iPad. I mean, its just a big iPod Touch right?

Then I found myself in the Apple store playing with one. And while it is still a big iPod Touch I find myself really wanting one haha.

BUT, should I wait on 2.0 to come out in a year or so or purchase now?

Who has one? What do you like / not like.

OH and please don't use this to spread hate on Apple haha.

iPad

I have the 32G 3G model. Bought it the day it came out. Primarily for reading books and periodicals on line and access to internet since work network is so restrictive. Have no way of telling if you should wait. All I can say is the iPad is amazing. Fast, reliable, amazing graphics and as with most Apple products built for the consumer. I have no issues with connections for either 3G or WiFi. Battery life lives up to the claim. Get one!

I have an Ipad. I wish it uses Adobe Flash, because there is this site that my 2 yrs old loves to get on (starfall.com). The wireless range is kind of limited. Other than that, I love it. It feels like a large iphone in which I also use.
